UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND, Va. - University of Richmond Spiders head men's golf coach Adam Decker released the 2012 fall schedule on Tuesday. The slate includes four tournaments in total, including a trip to Ireland to play in the Waterville Collegiate.
"We have a nice mix of events lined up this fall - highlighted by our first trip overseas," Decker remarked. "The guys are excited to get an international experience and see what travel abroad is like. Competitively, we will see a strong line up of teams from Big 10 to ACC to Atlantic 10 conferences among others. The team is experienced and I am excited to get them back to campus as a group and compete."
The Spiders will get their 2012-13 season underway on September 10-11 when they will travel to Huntington, West Virginia to play in the Marshall Invitational at the Guyan Country Club. Richmond started last season at the Marshall Invitational, placing seventh.
